Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Take off could have been better. It was delayed, but pilot helped resolve the problem; so, it was fine."
Cons: "Cold air streaming from the storage bins."
Pros: "Stuck in Chicago. Never made it to Denver because of weather. Had to get hotel."
Cons: "Better accommodations by United."
Pros: "Love this direct flight! So nice!"
Cons: "Volume of the PA was so loud it was painful"
Pros: "Good flight, boarding, crew, and comfort."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment that I could access, no power for my devices (it didn’t work)."
Cons: "Tea - disgusting brown liquid! What about a tea bag, or I gladly would take just a cup of hot water to brew my own. Sandwiches: turkey with cheese or cheese. I am allergic to milk (common allergy), you put milk products everywhere. Vegan is the only option, sadly it is usually some sort of Asian food and I am not Asian, have a gag reflex when I smell Indian food. This was not Air India flight, but smelled like one!!! Will avoid flying with United. Somehow, although I booked on purpose with Brussels Air, without my consent (!!!) I was sold tickets for United operated flight. Please, don't tell me that customers are your #1 priority, because they are NOT!"
Pros: "Great experience from A-Z!!"
Pros: "Smooth short flight"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and there wasn't enough legroom"
Cons: "No food or snack on first flight in the morning"
Pros: "Geat Landing and crew"
Cons: "Broke climate control"
Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Pros: "Most of my flights this time had more legroom than I’ve been seeing lately. Very pleasant flight and nice not to be so cramped. The flight also left from the same terminal in Denver as my previous flight. With a 1 hour connection that was wonderful. Keep that up, United! The crew also came by regularly with offers of water. Much appreciated."
Cons: "Naturally no food except pretzels."
Pros: "Once we were on the flight everything was fine, but getting on the flight was stressful."
Cons: "The security checkpoints in the United wing were incredibly excessive. I'm not sure if this is a new process, but it was incredibly stressful. Just when you thought you were done, there was yet another line to stand in for yet another security check."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly"
Cons: "Small plane, bumpy ride is to be expected. This one was a bit more than even I’m used to."
Cons: "Late flight. No support to find back-up flights. No help with tips of how to navigate chicago airport to hopefully get to connecting flight in timely manner. Shuttle service could have been mentioned. The area of the airport I would need to get to in Chicago was not known. Although thr flight to Chicago was by far not full Iwas denied my request to take my roll on on the flight. It fits under seat. I am 70 and had to run across the airport."
Cons: "the wifi was slow to non-existent for the 4 hour flight. they need to bring back the movie screens & headphone jacks !"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Travelled with my wife and they didn't put us together - the counter response was to ask a customer to swap seats (which she did not)! Just a poor experience, as you would now expect with Unites."
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Cons: "Munich - Houston overnight flight. No breakfast. No good."
Pros: "Bumpy but spectacular ride through a thunderstorm on descent."
Cons: "Flight assistants were not particularly helpful with our baby. Same complaint about baggage, but on this longer flight, why make us pay extra for food and entertainment too?!"
Pros: "Great experience overall"
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Coffee was great."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Doesn't look like it's been thoroughly cleaned in ages. My seat was broken. Had to sit upright the entire trip. Bathroom door wouldn't stay closed."
Pros: "I didnt like anything. Once back in USA we were discriminated for talking about our distaste for Donald Trump. Someone was offended and we were kicked off. Unconstitutional."
Pros: "I arrived two hours early to the airport as specified and arrived to find out my flight was delayed by over four hours. So my daughter and I had to sit in the airport for over six hours."
Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."
Cons: "No mechanics available and had to send for some, taking 5 hours. Didn't get to destination until late at night and missed my event."
Pros: "Nothing terrible I've had better!"
Cons: "SFO canceled incoming flights so I asked to reschedule and they put me on a American Airlines flight that had a layover in Pheonix. Why did they use another airline? Why did I pay for a direct flight and have to have a layover. Why did I have to wait in security again. This has been the worst travel experience I've ever had and I'll make sure never to fly united airlines again."
Cons: "Flying at the back of the plane is just not as nice of a trip."
Pros: "Hard working efficient crew. On time; a pleasant flight. Excellent flight attendant who covered all requests on her own."
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Pros: "Thank you for making this connection available from charlottesville to dulles. It beat driving! Everyone was helpful"
Pros: "the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The seats are so small you cannot access your carry on under the seats."
Pros: "I liked that I was given spacious accommodations for myself and my service animal."
Cons: "I didn't like that we then sat on the plane for 2 hours, then had to get back off. I don't really blame United Airlines for this because there was a storm. But if Kayak wants me to rate the flight I'd have to say it was bad because it didn't even occur."
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing.. Due to a disability the pre parsing is nice.. Crew was very acini dating and friendly.."
Cons: "Last take off caused me to to miss my connection and they had to reroute me through an additional airport."
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."
Cons: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Cons: "cold I the cabin - leaky vent by my legs in 3D"
Pros: "Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "One of the attendants was pushy and rude."
Pros: "Overall service."
Cons: "Impolite Lady Gate Agent."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful. This was my first flight in eight years. The staff from the terminal to the plane was very helpful."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped and the ventilation was poor. At one moment it was hot anther moment it was cold. The flight was too short for beverage service. Could have used a cold small bottle of water."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight customer service had attitude"
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Pros: "Great customer service at the counter."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable & flight crew was cheerful"
Cons: "The entertainment on the United app was unavailable. Would've helped a 6 hour flight go by much faster."
